The Church of Scientology: Good Luck Getting Your Money Back! - 2014-12-22
When it comes to taking a person's money, the Church of Scientology moves at the speed of light. When it comes to refunding money, however, the Church moves in a geological time frame and uses its bad faith sham contract terms to make it virtually impossible to get money back.
One example: By definition, donations to the IAS are inherently out exchange as nothing is exchanged with the donor. Compounding this violation of its own "doctrine of exchange" that Scientology made such a big deal about with the IRS, IAS donations are non-refundable per the donation contract.
The inference here is that the IAS does not practice the doctrine of exchange and admits such when takes in donations on a nonrefundable basis. The IAS is yet another wealth extraction scam in the larger Scientology con game masquerading as a religion.
